Name that Music Effect...Eternal Sunshine edition

What is the name of the warbling, sort of buzzy effect heard on the background accompaniment part? (It's hard to tell whether it's strings or a synthesizer.) Is it some kind of delay effect? (Link inside question.)

I think it's being played backwards, but I'm not sure.

It's an acoustic guitar being played backwards. I've processed it so you can hear what it sounded like before it was reversed.

ahhh yeah i think they play stuff backwards to give it that weird effect of seeming like everything is flying by them.
